Republican party leaders are starting to quietly voice concerns about their future in light of the dramatic rise of the ideological right control of the party. They are polling at their lowest in a decade and some of them are worried that their candidate in 2012 might be someone like Palin or Romney. Looks like some of the more mainstream Republicans want to do something about it.
So what would it take to rig the primaries for Olympia Snowe to get nominated?
Meanwhile, Republicans have it in for Alan Grayson who has single-handedly altered the framework of debate in everything from health care to climate change. They’re complaining about the tone of his rhetoric. Here the Republicans have been screaming about “death panels,” while accusing Obama of defrauding the country with a fake birth certificate, and comparing the White House’s sniping at Fox to the holocaust, and one or two members of the Democratic Congressional caucus acts even remotely like them they wig out.
Meanwhile, if Snowe manages to sink a real public option as enabled by a wimpy White House position, she may have troubles at home.
